The Meatballs That Fooled My Meat-Loving Husband and 12 Other Must-Try Trader Joe's Vegan Products


I haven’t eaten meat since I was 13 (almost 30 years!), not only because I want to live a more compassionate life and do good for the environment, but also selfishly, because I feel amazing when I eat a plant-based diet. Of course, I want my husband to reap the same benefits, so I try to get him to go meatless most nights of the week, and with these Trader Joe’s products, it’s a cinch. No joke — I served him Trader Joe’s Meatless Meatballs without telling him, and he said, “You didn’t have to buy me meat, I know how you feel about it.” I just smiled and told him I loved him, then later posted a video of him enjoying his dinner on Facebook. He saw the video an hour later and yelled, “What else have you been lying to me about?!”

Moral of the story: if your goal is to eat a more plant-based diet, buy those meatless meatballs! And while you’re cruising the aisles of your local Trader Joe’s, pick up these 12 other meatless products.
